Kolkata:Having prepared well to face up to the awesome Pakistan pace battery, stylish Indian batsman V V S Laxman was confident of continuing his sparkling form from Down-Under in the coming series in the neighbouring nation.

"I have prepared myself to face the Pakistan bowling with confidence. I have watched video recordings of Pakistani bowlers in action in New Zealand and South Africa," Laxman told reporters on the sidelines of the three-day conditioning camp now underway in Kolkata.

Laxman, who was one of the success stories with the bat during the recent tour of Australia, said, "I have gained a lot of confidence through my performance. I will continue my form in Pakistan.

"Australia was a world class team and we played well against them, but Pakistan is another team," he said. Praising the Pakistani pacers Laxman said they were 'world class bowlers' with 'raw pace' and expected to bowl well on their turf, but "I have my own way of countering them."

The Hyderabad batsman said that all 15 members of the Indian team would have to contribute their best in Pakistan to emerge with flying colours. To a query Laxman said that coach John Wright and newly appointed bowling consultant Kapil Dev were doing a "good job."
